Just went here for the first time. Had brunch. We sat outside in the back which was awesome. Highly recommended. Look forward to coming back here to experience the back patio at night. The food was delicious. Will definitely be coming here more for brunch! More...

We just keep having one solid experience after another at The Bowery. Seems to get better every time we go. Started with some of the freshest, cleanest tasting raw oysters I’ve had in a long time, expertly prepared and presented. Cocktails are tasty and well made by the sweet bartenders out on the patio. And the roasted salmon was delicious, as were all our mains. Put it all in a cool, relaxed outdoor space with a funky playlist wafting through the air and you’ve got yourself a perfect evening.

This place is a hidden gem. It has a neatley tucked away garden patio in the back and a very inviting and friendly atmosphere for the interior. There unfiltered cider is awesome and portions are large so be prepared to take some home or share with a friend. A favorite of my wife and I is to split the seafood chowder and a burger while substituting the fries for a side salad with there sherry vinaigrette. More...

Had lunch here on a recommendation and the service was prompt, the staff friendly, and the food was good. It was cool out and little rainy so the patio wasn't open, but it looks like a good spot to hang out and enjoy a meal.

Gorgeous decor and delicious food. Hand crafted cocktails were tasty and the beer selection large. I was surprised how busy they were on my visit and table times were about an hour. However, it was worth the wait (plus, finding seats at the bar made the wait enjoyable). A little pricier than I first expected, but I hope to return again soon! More...

This new incarnation of a local restaurant is more welcoming than its predecessor. The formerly stilted decor has been reworked to feature industrial chic, plus huge screens playing sports programs.Service was attentive and friendly. Our cocktails were very good. The food was good, but not teriffic. Nachos lacked the advertised black beans and the pickled onions and lime crema had a brightness that would be better balanced by a bit more salt and a little less vinegar.While my shaved sprouts and kale salad were delicious, my dining companion sent his gnocchi back, as it was overcooked and lacked the tomato one expects in a Bolognese. The server and the GM responded quickly and graciously.We are looking forward to the warm season, when we can enjoy the wonderful patio without being assailed by TVs everywhere. We hope the chef ups his game soon. More...

Stopped in on a Sunday night; very quaint and neighborly. Dimly lit with bright TV screens. Bartender Dave was cool and friendly. The plate of nachos ordered was the biggest plate I have ever seen! And the Pain Killah cocktail has become my favorite! Great place to stop in for a quick bite or drink. More...

We had walked by this place a number of times and we finally made it in. The food does not disappoint except for a couple items on portion size. The popcorn shrimp was fresh and very tasty but a tiny portion for $14, we also tried out the crab rangoon dip and it was really really good and a better value than the shrimp. For an entree we split the steak tips which tasted great but were presented in a very strange way. I don't mind if ingredients touch on the same plate but the plate up for this dish looked like we had ordered almost a diet portion with everything on its own side of the plate. The flavors for everything were very well developed and thought out. Our cocktails were very good as well with an impressive beer list to accompany. We will definitely be back, and I would recommend this location to others. More...

I love this place so much. It has become our go-to for early evening dinners with the kids and late date night drinks. The food is just so good. Some of our favorites are the Salmon, fish and chips and the shaved kale and Brussels salad. My boys love the steak tips. Add to the great food an eclectic and fun atmosphere (great place to play “I spy” with kids while waiting) and an amazing patio in the summer. More...

I’m a little biased...but I’ll be honest and say the patio is just insane cool. Felt like I was in some bar on the cape but really was just in the middle of Dorchester. GREAT job by all involved!!

Everything about The Bowery is great! Such a welcome addition to the neighborhood! The patio is the perfect retreat in the middle of Dot... no long lines of traffic to The Cape (as much as I love that too �)
Well done boys... you’ll be seeing a lot of me ��

Decor is great inside and out. Patio is the best in Boston. Service was excellent. Long wait for a table and the kitchen was backed up but servers and managers handled it well keeping us updated. Made all the difference. Surely still working out the kinks. Farmhouse burger was great..you had me at Pimiento cheese. Drinks were excellent. We will be back. More...

Love this new place...both inside and out. Such a warm and positive vibe and both the food and the staff were great...not an easy feat for a place so newly opened and still working out the kinks. The patio is such a cool and unique space for its location and the indoor decor is awesome- looking forward to going back soon. More...

The Root Beer Old Fashioned is my FAVORITE drink ever! The crab rangoon, brussel sprouts, and Cauliflower are EXCELLENT small dishes, full of flavor. The atmosphere is cool, and the design is pretty awesome. The old school oscillating fans are dope, and each booth has an outlet! Perfect place to sit and do work. Plenty on tv's to watch the games too... its like Lucy's slightly sexier little sister. Lucy's is their affiliate restaurant, also in Dorchester. More...

I love this spot!!! The food, the atmosphere and the service was impeccable! Gabby was our server and she was awesome and attentive. My steak tips were slightly over cooked and the owner Mark had it prepared for me again and it was done in less than 10 minutes. The food is incredible!! Thank you for the experience Mark! My family appreciated everything. Owners from other establishments should take a page out of your book. More...

This restaurant is a wonderful addition to the lower mills neighborhood. The patio's atmosphere is just exactly what you want during the summer from the twinkly lights, lawn games, delicious food and cocktails... it is just perfect. It is a great family place as well. The inside will be so cozy for the fall and winter and I just love all the details! 5 stars! More...

Actually 4.5 stars but that option is not available. Ate here 3 days after opening. The food was great and reasonably priced. The service was very good and efficient. The misting system on the patio offered some respite on a very hot day. Nice touch. The restuarant is also kid friendly. The major drawback is the parking situation in Lower Mills. I suggest parking at the CVS and walking to the Bowery. More...

Cold drinks, awesome atmosphere, and unbelievable renovations. Went with a few friends for a casual mid-week cocktail and apps. The new outside patio and bar was amazing - they even have misters to keep everyone cool in the summertime. Would definitely recommend to Dorchester locals and visitors alike - all around really good experience. More...
